Things to See & Do

Australian Skydive
Near Torquay

Australian Skydive

Australian Skydive is a leading skydive operator. They operate out of both Torquay Bells Beach and Bridgewater on Loddon. Tandem skydive at Torquay over Bells beach up to 15,000 feet, with a 70 second freefall and five minute canopy ride with amazing views of beautiful Great Ocean Road and Bells Beach. The view will be as mind blowing as the experience. Or tandem skydive over the spectacular Goldfields at Bridgewater on Loddon 15,000 feet. With a great atmosphere and exceptional customer service you will feel more than welcome at both of the drop zones. However, if you want more than tandem skydiving, feel free to take the leap solo. Australian Skydive offer a range of solo skydive training packages at our Bridgewater drop zone. Ranging from the first stage of the course over two days, to the full 'A' licence package over nine days which allows you to skydive solo anywhere in the world. Australian Skydive is committed to providing you with the highest quality skydiving experience that we can possibly deliver. With their products, they offer you 100 per cent adrenaline guaranteed. "The sky is not the limit".

Skydive the Beach and Beyond

Skydive the Beach and Beyond has two exciting locations in country Victoria. The Great Ocean Road where you will see stunning coastal views of The Great Ocean Road, Bells Beach and Melbourne city. Also the Yarra Valley where you will see views of the 141 wineries, Dandenong Ranges and Port Phillip Bay! You begin the day with a briefing with your tandem sky dive instructor. This includes what to expect and what you will see on the plane flight to height, in freefall, under canopy and upon landing. You will walk out to the plane and there you will conduct your practice exits. Once all the ground preparation has been completed, it is time to get in the plane and get ready for take-off! Once you reach height, it will be time to prepare you for the jump. The door opens and as you leave the plane, you and your tandem master will accelerate through the air reaching terminal velocity of 220 kilometres per hour. Freefall feels like riding a cushion of air similar to riding a big wave. In freefall, your senses will be able to take in stunning views as far as the eye can see. Then finally it is time to pull your parachute open. From the loud rushing of air that you hear all around you, the parachute ride is very different as you sail around the sky, gliding. The landing is easy, just lift your legs. The parachute will glide and you will eventually put your feet down to land.
